Schooling in the midddle years should respond to the specific needs of adolescents. But it is not just their needs that require a response. Education has two overarching purposes: to develop the knowledge, skills and values of each individual; and to develop the society in which it occurs. So the schooling of adolescents must respond to the needs of young people but also aim to provide an education which will help to build a better society - the society which as adults they will inherit in their turn.
